In My Mailbox #101: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon. Click images for a bigger picture!

I think this was quite possibly the BEST WEEK EVER. Or, y'know, definitely the best week of the year. I can't even describe how excited I am to read all the books I got for review (I'm halfway through The Thirteen Secrets now - it's *so* good. I love you, Michelle Harrison!), and the books I got for Christmas are equally as exciting. And really, really pretty US editions. *sigh*

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas if you celebrate it, and if not, I hope you had a great book-filled week! For Christmas I got books, CDs, DVDs, a fab dragon statue and a ticket to see Rihanna live next November. I'm very happy :D

This IMM is split into two sections: my usual for review/bought, and then books received for Christmas. So, here goes!


(These all arrived because these authors will be at a Simon & Schuster blogger event I'm going to in February. A few are doubles, so they'll be going to good homes soon!)

For review:
  • RSVP by Helen Warner
  • Hellhole by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson
  • Halo by Alexandra Adornetto


  • Room by Emma Donoghue


Gifts for Christmas:

From mum and dad:
  • My Vampire Diary (A Vampire Diaries diary!)

From my BFF:

That's all from me. See you all next week, and have a very happy new year!

where to start - these look awesome!!!

♥Iffath said...

Wow, you had a very awesome week Jenny!! The 13 Secrets! *dies* Mortal Kiss is the one that was featured on Stardoll, right? I like the cover :}

YAY for The Wanted and hope you had a very good Christmas, because it certainly looks like you did!!

Alice Dwyer said...

Amazing. I have a lot of these books on my to read list. I hope you enjoy all your books.

I am going to pretend I am not sneaking overseas and stealing your copy of 13 Secrets whilst composing the rest of this comment, ok? Pay no attention to that noise you hear out your window...

PAIN MERCHANTS!! The first two books in the Janice Hardy series were amazing. I received both for review over the summer from Harper and I fell in love. Nya is a brilliant main character. I also love the cover of the UK version, but I think I like my North American ones better for once. ha!

Also, I have been looking at those Dragony books for what feels like years now and yet have never picked them up. So I am relying on you and your opinion of them to help me decide if I should finally cave in and add them to my library!

NIGHT STAR looks like a scene from an Avil Lavigne Black Star perfume add. Look it up on youtube if you don't know what I am talking about. :P

So happy you are enjoying Fablehaven! Read more of them! Read! Now!

Stasia said...

OMG, what an amazing bunch of books. James Owen rocks! As do the boys from Glee :)

Dwayne said...

Superb stash Jenny! I'm freaked by the My Name is Memory cover, because I swear it doesn't match the book :( But who cares, 13 secrets is next to it!!!

I super love the books your parents got you, bet you squealed when you saw unwrapped them :D

PS. 13 Secrets! aaargh!!!

I don't even know where to begin, but I agree - best loot you've gotten all year!! Geez you could almost swim through those!! :)

Becky said...

I still haven't read the first Beautiful Americans and I've had it for ages. I definitely need to do a list of my books that I will read next year. I want to read more of the books that I buy so I can buy more LOL.

Oh and I'm really interested to see how you get on with those Dragon books because I think my little brother might enjoy them...

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

Wow, you did well, didn't you?! I've heard such brilliant things about so many of those books. I can;t wait to hear what you think of them.
